Wurst Week

November 10, 2018

When I was seven, my birthday party was held at a restaurant called the Wiener King. They roped off an area for us kids and had hot dog shaped balloons and a hot dog shaped cake and banana splits with red bananas to make them look like hot dogs. We got hot dogs for lunch and even played “pin the wiener on the bun.”

Man, that was some seriously messed up Freudian shit.

Food, Folks and Funeral

November 5, 2018

In a shocker that stunned the QSR world, fast food pitchman Ronald McDonald was found dead in his McDonaldland home late last week. The burger clown died of a massive heart attack brought on by decades of fatty, greasy, caloric food, including Quarter Pounders, McNuggets and Hot Apple Pies – just as the McDonald’s corporation celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Big Mac.

“He appeared to be in peak condition,” said longtime companion Grimace, through tears. “But appearances were obviously deceiving … like that runner, Jim Fixx, who dropped dead while jogging back in the ’80s. Just tragic.”

Doctor Hiram Snavely, renowned medico to such fast food luminaries as Wendy, Chuck E. Cheese and Gilbert Giddyup, noted that such a demise is not uncommon within the ranks of restaurant mascots. “The Colonel? Salmonella. The Chihuahua? Dehydration due to Montezuma’s Revenge. Big Boy? Coronary artery disease at age 17. They are what they eat and all the fruit and walnut salads in the world cannot make up for a lifetime of crap,” he said. “Just watch ‘Supersize Me’ some time.”

But chastisement and blame aside, those on the inside seem completely aware of their plight. Former pizza frontman, The Noid, now serving a lifetime sentence for fraud and embezzlement, noted, “We are nothing but indentured servants, held fast by the need for stardom and the addiction to the poison they feed us. We know our lives are worthless and that we’ll end up in an early grave – or worse, a living Hell.”

Meanwhile, a community mourns and comes together to bury its most revered and respected. The funeral will be held Wednesday during the lunchtime rush at McDonald’s Playplace. Services will be presided over by Reverend McCheese (recently ordained through the Internet). Ronald McDonald will be buried in a special McDLT coffin to keep the hot side hot and the cool side cool.

The Worst Noel

November 3, 2018

A local radio station has started playing Christmas music. Not just peppering their playlist with the occasional yule tune. No. All-Christmas! ALL THE BLOODY TIME! A mere handful of days after Halloween.

They claim that listeners demanded it. Apparently people wanted to hear I’ll Be Home For Christmas and Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer 7 million times between now and the New Year until their damn eyes bled!

Now don’t get all defensive and call me Scrooge or anything, I enjoy the odd seasonal ditty as much as the next dude. The Kinks’ Father Christmas and the Waitresses’ Christmas Wrapping are musts on my turntable when the nog flows freely. But c’mon! Seriously! TWO MONTHS of non-stop Christmas music? Personally, I think even Jesus would snap after hearing Feliz Navidad for the twelfth time in  three days.

They say that when God closes a door he opens a window. Why not? God needs to air the place out every once in a while. Or perhaps God just likes a little cool night air while he sleeps. Don’t judge! As far as the door thing goes, of course he closed it; God ain’t paying to heat the whole neighborhood, y’know?

Looking for nice tunes for your celebratory shindig? Cool beans. Just take it from me. Don’t blast Birthday Bitches by the Insane Clown Posse at Nana’s 75th soiree. It doesn’t go over well, trust me – and it’s damn hard to explain to the paramedics why Nana has that inexplicable rictus.
